Tisha Campbell Drops Restraining Order Against Ex

2/14/2019 2:12 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tisha Campbell-Martin is cutting her estranged husband, Duane Martin, a huge break, but not for his sake ... TMZ has learned.

Tisha and Duane were both in court Thursday for a hearing on her restraining order, and she told the judge she wanted to drop it in the name of co-parenting. Tisha said she's still in fear of Duane, but for the sake of their kids wanted to make it easier for them to take care of them and attend activities.

She said they've agreed to give each other advance notice if they're both going to any events for their 2 sons.

As we reported, Tisha previously got a temporary restraining order against Duane, after accusing him of physical abuse

She claimed he recently flew into a violent rage, and had been physically, emotionally and mentally abusive throughout their marriage. Duane is vehemently denying the allegations.

Tisha and Duane are still locked in a bitter divorce, with claims of bad parenting being fired off by both sides.

Tisha Campbell's Hubby Denies DV Allegations ... Timing of This Stinks

2/13/2019 12:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tisha Campbell-Martin's estranged husband is vehemently denying allegations of abuse leveled by his ex -- and furthermore, he's pointing out what he calls fishy timing.

Duane Martin filed new legal docs responding to Tisha's temporary restraining order which she got last month. Duane calls all of Tisha's claims of physical abuse "fabricated" and "false."

You'll recall ... Tisha claims Duane once punched her in the chest with a closed fist, adding that he's allegedly abused her since the start of their marriage in '96.

Besides issuing a blanket denial, he points out her abuse claims never surfaced even after Tisha filed for divorce in February 2018. He says she's only coming out with these claims now to give her leverage in their pending custody case.

As you might know ... Tisha and Duane are in the middle of a bitter divorce, and claims of bad parenting have been fired off by both sides.

In the docs, Duane says Tisha has filed two police reports over the past year to claim past alleged abuse -- but that she wasn't able to provide any real evidence, and that's why the L.A. City's Attorney's Office declined to file charges.

Duane wants the restraining order vacated, because he says she's just made up a bogus story. Duane's attorney, Michael Goldstein, tells TMZ ... "Duane has attempted to remain silent on this issue out of respect for his family and, most importantly, his children’s well-being."

Rapper Sheck Wes Accused of Beating, Stalking Ex-GF ... He Calls It All Lies

2/13/2019 6:24 AM PST

Rapper Sheck Wes is being labeled an abuser of women by his ex-GF but he's vehemently denying the allegations ... calling them all lies.

Justine Skye -- a singer, actress and model -- put Sheck on blast, calling him pathetic and claiming he put his hands on her in the past. She said there was an instance when she was "taking a walk with my friends and my man and Sheck Wes (my abuser) and his friends decide to STALK US and attack my friends.. two cars full of n****s while he sat in the car like a bitch."

She went on to say on Twitter, "You're pathetic sheck and you beat women. You hit your girl before me and you'll do it again." The rapper broke his silence just after midnight ... calling BS.

It's not the first time Justine's accused the Harlem rapper of abuse. Back in October, Justine wrote a lengthy post on Instagram saying she experienced domestic violence ... and then went on to like a bunch of tweets that specifically named Sheck as her abuser.

Justine's now been linked with rapper GoldLink, who appears to address Justine's abuse allegations head-on in his track "Justine's Interlude," which he dropped last month.

Some of the lyrics go, "So many stories 'bout you and so-and-so who from Harlem. It ain't too many from Harlem, so take a guess ... I'm tired of hearin' 'bout if this n***a put hands on you. Tired of tryna smile through s**t that's affectin' us."

Originally Published -- 2/12 7:00 AM PT

2/13 -- Sheck's legal and management team tells TMZ they are "fiercely standing by him through this. He has denied any wrongdoing whatsoever or violence of any kind and we believe him."

They continue, "He will defend himself against the serious defamation of character with any and all legal remedies available."

Future Bails on Pre-Grammys Party Performance That Ciara & Russell Attended

2/12/2019 12:30 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Future bailed on a performance at Clive Davis' pre-Grammys party at the last minute -- maybe not coincidentally, considering Ciara and Russell Wilson were front and center at the event.

Eyewitnesses at Clive's Beverly Hilton bash Saturday night -- which was a who's who of Hollywood event ahead of Sunday's award show -- confirm Future was booked to perform, but hightailed it when his team realized his ex-fiancee and her new hubby were in the front row.

Our sources -- who were present during the exchange -- say someone in Future's camp accused the event organizers of being "messy" by having Ciara and Russ there, and said their guy wouldn't perform. We're told Future was briefed about it outside, and then dipped. 

HollywoodLife first reported Future's departure. Now, there's another side to this story -- sources close to Future tell us he didn't bail because of Ciara or RW. 

Our Future sources say the show was behind schedule by nearly an hour, and he and his team were instructed to shorten his performance significantly, which, we're told, Future wasn't down with. We're told he had no idea Ciara or Russ was there.

Believe who ya want ... but either way, it doesn't sound like Future and Ciara are gonna be sharing any oxygen anytime soon.

Jennifer Aniston Brad Pitt Attends Big 5-0 ... No Hard Feelings

2/10/2019 7:13 AM PST

Jennifer Aniston is turning 50, and what better way to celebrate than inviting your ex-hubby Brad Pitt to the shindig?

It's kinda a big deal ... because their 5-year marriage fell apart when he hooked up with Angelina Jolie and eventually married her.  

Brad snaked around most of the paparazzi Saturday night at the Sunset Tower hotel on the Sunset Strip but you see him from behind as he enters the building. BTW, it's Jen's favorite spot in town ... she's there all the time and, in case you're interested, loves the chicken salad.

Brad was in a holy custody war with Angelina, but this doesn't seem to be a case of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." From all appearances, Brad and Jen remained on friendly terms.

A bunch of other celebs showed up, including Robert Downey, Jr., Reese Witherspoon, Rande Gerber, Pharrell Williams, Keith Richards, Gwyneth Paltrow, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, George and Amal Clooney, David Arquette, Courteney Cox, Barbra Streisand and many others.

BTW ... Brad used to date Gwyneth, so he knew the room!

Jen turns 50 on Monday. Happy BD!!!

Halsey on 'SNL' The Writing's On the Wall ... G-Eazy Cheated on Me?

2/10/2019 6:51 AM PST

Halsey may have put her ex, G-Eazy, on national blast Saturday night on 'SNL.'

She performed "Without Me" during the show and the wall behind her revealed huge letters that said, "Ashley, I cheated." Halsey's guv name is Ashley. 

It could be random, but she had to know people would assume she's referring to her ex, with whom she had a turbulent relationship during the year they were together.

There were lots of rumors she broke up with him over cheating, but she never opened up, once saying, "The biggest lesson I learned was to make art, not headlines ... because it can become quite easy, in the social media generation, to go from being a musician to becoming a personality."

That said, it seems she's playing to the social media generation, because people scrambled to twitter to decipher, and most say it's about cheating.

Halsey is now dating the British artist, Yungblud.

Jermaine Jones Estranged Wife Gets Restraining Order He's Harassed and Degraded Me

2/9/2019 9:32 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The wife of the retired soccer player who has been locked in a bitter divorce just got a restraining order against her estranged husband, after claiming he's been stalking and harassing her.

Sarah Jones claims in legal docs Jermaine Jones has been following her around town, despite an agreement they struck last December to stay away from each other.

Sarah filed for divorce last month ... this after he accused her of having a sexual relationship with David Charvet. David denies they had such a relationship, saying they were just friends.

Sarah claims in the docs, Jermaine has followed her to a market where she was shopping and then followed her car after she left, showed up at the Soho House where she was having lunch and sent her numerous "inappropriate, antagonistic and degrading messages."

Sarah says in the docs, "I believe Jermaine has acted this way to harass me, control me, intimidate me and disturb my peace of mind. I am scared of Jermaine's stalking behavior, Jermaine's monitoring my movements, Jermaine's harassing messages and Jermaine showing up at locations right when I am there."

The judge ordered Jermaine to stay clear of Sarah and their daughter ... at least temporarily. 

Ariana Grande Pete & Kate are 'So Cute' Together ... Mum on Grammys Dropout

2/7/2019 7:04 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande is flashing a big thumbs-up over her ex, Pete Davidson, getting together with Kate Beckinsale -- but on the issue of backing out of the Grammys ... zip.

AG was leaving Westwood One Radio Networks late Wednesday night in Culver City and our photog asked if she thought Pete and Kate -- who's 20 years his senior -- make a good couple. It's a lot better than that. Ariana says they're, "So cute!!!"

PD and KB have been hangin' quite a bit lately, and recently left a theater together hand-in-hand. The new pairing doesn't seem to bother Ari one bit ... nothin' but love here.

And, not only for Pete ... you gotta see her interaction with our guy. Ariana introduced us to her mom and some of her pals. She still wasn't down to talk about her Grammys boycott -- reportedly because the show's producers won't let her perform "7 Rings."

But, there was one topic she was dying to discuss -- eats. Late-night eats. We've all been there.

Bow Wow Clowned in 'Wild 'N Out' Rap Battle ... Future Got Your Exes, Bro!!!

2/7/2019 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bow Wow might have to give up all of his personal belongings ... after getting royally OWNED in an epic rap battle on 'Wild 'N Out.'

TMZ got this clip of 'Wild 'N Out' cast member Conceited delivering a cold-hearted diss, aimed right at Bow Wow's jugular -- clowning him about how a couple of his exes ended up with Future.

His opening line -- "I think all your exes are psychics by the way they keep seeing the Future." The crowd ate it up, and it got worse from there. Watch ... BW looks pissed.

If you didn't know, Conceited's shot is touchy because it's totally true! Bow Wow was once engaged to Ciara ... they broke up, Ciara started dating Future and, of course, had a son with him. Later, Bow Wow dated Joie Chavis and had a daughter with her. When they broke up ... you-know-who swooped again, and also had a kid with Joie.

The episode -- airing this Friday at 8 P.M. on MTV -- was clearly taped before Super Bowl weekend when Bow Wow and his current GF, Kiyomi Leslie Holden, were both arrested in Atlanta for allegedly beating each other.

It's unclear if Bow Wow and Kiyomi Leslie have broken up due to the fight. We're guessing 'Wild 'N Out' wouldn't have touched such a serious incident, anyway. 

Tisha Campbell's Ex Slams Her Parenting and Education ... Ignores Abuse Claims

2/5/2019 12:41 PM PST

Duane Martin didn't come anywhere close to addressing Tisha Campbell-Martin's abuse allegations in his latest legal filing ... but he does take a shot at her parenting skills.

According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Duane doesn't specifically make any mention of Tisha's allegations levied against him ... that he physically, mentally and emotionally started abusing her near the start of their marriage back in 1996.

In docs, Duane goes after the "Martin" star's skills as a parent -- or lack thereof. He says, for example, their kids don't do their homework when they're with her. He adds it's a different story when they're with him because "I am a graduate of New York University. Schooling was very important to me." He says Tisha didn't graduate from any university and has no educational background.

What's more ... it appears Tisha and Duane had previously agreed to hand off custody of their kids at a police station, but Duane now wants that to change because he says it's not in the best interest of their kids. Duane also wants the courtroom cleared for the next hearing. 

As we reported ... Tisha alleged Duane once punched her in the chest with a closed fist and as recently as December Duane allegedly "grabbed me by my arm to try to get me in the bedroom." She claimed to have filed a police report in January about multiple alleged physical altercations.

Darius McCrary Divorce Deal, Finally!!! Ex-Wife Gets Daughter

2/4/2019 1:15 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Darius McCrary's real-life "Family Matters" are finally settled -- after a nearly 2-year long divorce battle he and his ex-wife have reached an agreement ... TMZ has learned.

Tammy Brawner, a former Harlem Globetrotter, and Darius filed final divorce docs Monday in L.A. -- and in their most contentious issue ... custody of 3-year-old Zoey ... Tammy's come out on top. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, she gets legal and physical custody of Zoey, and Darius will have weekly visits with her.

There are several strings attached for Darius. For starters, his first 20 visits with Zoey will be monitored. According to docs, he must also attend alcohol/drug abuse and batterers intervention classes over the next year -- and complete 6 parenting classes.

If he completes the classes, he can then have unmonitored visits. He'll still have to enroll in co-parenting classes. Both parents are banned from speaking in a "negative, disrespectful or derogatory manner" around their child.

Financially, Darius will pay Tammy $1,366 per month in child support ... but no spousal support.

The court seems to be taking Tammy's allegations about Darius' substance abuse very seriously. The agreement requires him to submit to 2 random drug tests over the next 60 days.

Neither parent can be under the influence of drugs or any other substances when they have Zoey.

Roger Mathews to JWoww I'm Not a Monster ... Let's Call a Truce for Our Kids

2/2/2019 10:38 AM PST

JWoww's estranged husband says she has painted him as a monster and a woman beater -- which he strongly denies -- but he's willing to call a truce and give her a hug ... for the good of their children.

Roger Mathews shared a lengthy letter online Saturday morning titled, "A Message to Jenni," in which he rehashed their recent turmoil and responded to her allegations this week that he's been abusive to her on multiple occasions.

Mathews says he's extremely saddened the 2 have not been able to find a better way to handle their differences but also slams JWoww for deliberately trying to using her platform to destroy his life. He also blames her getting a restraining order on him for hurting his relationship with their son.

As for the abuse allegations ... Roger admits to pushing her and says he takes responsibility for it but claims Jenni was the aggressor and edited out her violent behavior. As we reported, she shared a video of what looks like Mathews throwing her to the ground.

Despite Mathews recently vowing to take legal action against JWoww, he ends his letter by pleading with her to "stop the madness" and work things out for their kids. 

He says ... "We are both assholes. Let’s raise our kids better. I want to help you. Please try and help me. We need each other. Not in the way we once did but this madness has to stop. Own your truths as I have owned mine. Work with me and I will work with you. A part of me will always love you. I had to clear my name. I can help you clear yours too. I know all the good things you’ve done in your life as well as knowing the bad. Let's make the necessary changes for our children. I will if you will. I want you to be happy and I deserve to be happy as well. Happy parents make for happy kids. We owe them this. I be willing to give you a hug at the end of the day today as a truce offering."

Stay tuned.

Channing Tatum Moving On from Bachelor Pad ... Thanks for the Memorie$$$

2/1/2019 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Channing Tatum's ditching the bachelor life by parting with his rented pad -- which might not scream "single" from the outside, but on the inside it's definitely an untethered man's dream.

Channing was renting this charming, colonial-style home in the San Fernando Valley between November and January in the aftermath of his split from Jenna Dewan last year. 

We're told this was Channing's second crash pad -- he initially rented in L.A.'s Mandeville Canyon for 6 months. The Valley spot didn't come cheap either. Our sources say he shelled out a whopping $25k every month. Not quite Bieber rental prices, but still.

The 2-story, 5-bedroom crib has all the bells and whistles a single dude might want -- sweet pool out back, private movie theater, game room, sports court, dual-purpose office, and guest house. There's also an area that can easily be converted into a wine cellar or recording studio. 

We're told Channing moved out a few days ago to snap up something more permanent.

We don't know where he's moving, but we'd bet his new GF, Jessie J, has the address, and maybe even keys ... if that's still going on.
